[1: 1,971 of 10,000] Beautiful Words From Caroline Myss

In Aphorism on July 29, 2019 at 12:40 PM

I’ve listened to Oprah Winfrey’s interview of Caroline Myss once again because my soul is searching for meaning and I couldn’t focus on what I need to do. My mind wanders and it’s asking for food that I couldn’t understand and ain’t providing.

Caroline Myss defined Spirit as…
The part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose.
The part of you that is drawn to hope.
Not to give in to despair.
The part of you that has to believe in goodness.
The part of you that feels like hope.
The part of you that feels like grace.
Oprah Winfrey added, “It’s the light of you.”

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know what happens tomorrow.
Be fully present, and
Appreciate all that’s in your life right now.

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know why things happen as they do.

Caroline and Oprah, combined thoughts,
Try
Give it your all
Give it your best
Not to be attached to the outcome
Surrender it
Let it go
To the power greater than yourself

Other beautiful words she shared:

  • If you have life, you have a purpose.
  • You are on the right path when you’re not put in a position to betray yourself.
  • Choose what will enhance your spirit and not what will drain your power.
  • Grace transforms a moment into something better.
  • A miracle is when God bends these laws for you in an intimate way.

Other prayers mentioned in the interview:

  • “Hover over me (God).” by St. Teresa of Avila
  • “Please enter where You (God) already abide.” From the book Illuminata by Marianne Williamson

There is a feeling of lightness in my life including believing that I am blessed, I am joyful, and that a fire of passion burns within me that beyond doubt give me the push that I can accomplish anything. I am so grateful right now!

I keep an image of a quote from Oprah Winfrey that says, “I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.”

The first time I read it, I always thought, it would be nice to reach that place where I am able to be grateful all the time, without the constant complain of what is going wrong, but seeing solutions and yes, simply being grateful.

Now that I read it again, since I am experiencing it, I understood the soul of those words. It speaks not only about the abundance of wealth (obviously what I am after so I can get out of the rat race), but the outpouring of peace that makes everything simple, not necessarily easy, because I have to still put in my beautiful efforts.

It is indeed a beautiful life if we know what exactly to tap.

[1: 1,708 of 10,000] Everybody Needs Validation

In Article on May 26, 2016 at 12:36 AM

Oprah Winfrey (I just have to add, I adore her) shared that everyone needs validation, whether victims of violence, celebrities including Beyonce, or just about any regular folks. She said, “What we do and what we say, and who we are matters. We want to be validated. Do you see? What I say mean anything to you? Do I matter to you?”

I try to wrap my head around it, depending on certain circumstances, I do ask for validation. Do I look good? Did I do a great job? Especially finding the opinion of the people who I consider that mattered to me, who’s decision I do respect, and so the rest are just bubbles that I don’t care or maybe I don’t sense the authenticity.

Yes sometimes, it doesn’t bother me if they like what I do especially if I know that it’s part of my obligation. I met a man that whenever I thank him for accomplishing a good work, he said it’s my job to do. I wonder, in those times that I don’t care, is it because I am not attached with the effect, I don’t need to be patronised, or am I too busy to pause and appreciate the accolade?

You and I matter, that’s for sure. May we always be heard and seen. May we find the right ways to live and truly matter to be living greater than ourselves.

You and I matter

 

[1: 1,352 of 10,000] I Am Paving My Dream

Many HatsI am hitting rock bottom to the extent of feeling depressed and wanting to die now. I am seeking the answer of why am I really here beside the fact that God loves me. I am losing the will to survive and have been comfortable to be a mediocre and not pursue what I was truly meant to do for the rest of my life, to live the gift I was bestowed with, my calling. I put on different masks, hats, or roles that it overwhelmed me to do the things that grind me to bits, delivering without the consequence of dying in some time. I have no enthusiasm and it is frustrating and making me defensive and grumpy.

I couldn’t complain but I could leave and live what will bring my heart in a present being and be loving filled with true joy. I will start to make my plan towards my calling because if I don’t do it I could just take a knife and take my life because there is nothing worst that being in so much despair and sobbing.

My calling is nudging me now. I have asked the question why am I here and now it is pushing me to answer it, ACT on it. I need to be ready to face it with a lot of courage and conquer my fears. I am afraid that when I go on writing with the best selling book on a way that I do not know how, I will starve but the universe is conspiring to lead me to it beautifully. Paulo Coelho said, “If you don’t fear the unknown, the unknown will be kind to you.” And guess what, God was never tired to love and grace me that He leads me to watch this video that answered so many of my doubts, an interview of Oprah Winfrey with an amazing soul Elizabeth Gilbert. Watch it as it may speak to you as it does to me – http://www.oprah.com/own-super-soul-sunday/Full-Episode-Elizabeth-Gilbert-Part-1-Video.

I got to keep on writing now and the spark in my heart just got perked up and lusciously excited.

[1: 1,315 of 10,000] My Latest Obsession: BU-BO

In Article on May 16, 2014 at 5:12 PM

Books ObsessionBU-BO meaning Buying Books; and reading them of course! I just purchased AED 869.00 worth of 13 books in few hours. If I did not stop (because it turned out to be an extreme work out for my arms) I could have gotten more. I still love printed books, it’s not about old school but I can carry it where ever I am without the worry of battery life running out.

It’s good for karma (for aspiring published author like me) and it’s good for my starving mind. The surprising thing is I am buying books that were published years back but as I read them they give me all those AHA moments. I am a fan of Oprah Winfrey and she certainly recommended good books. I was right that although I could have watched the whole Super Soul Sunday interview; reading the actual book is still a million times worth it.

Lots of business related books there because I wanted to learn on building a good business; good benefit for my employer and a preparation for my own future entrepreneur self. I can’t wait to finish all of them but not on a hurried reading style since I want to make sure every beautiful piece of advice is inculcated in my being to access it whenever I needed wisdom.

Respect to all authors and here here is my way to show it; buy it, read it, learn it, and the most important is to live those that are relevant to me.

[1: 1,238 of 10,000] Oprah Says No Child

In Article on December 12, 2013 at 8:42 AM

Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy

I love Oprah Winfrey. She inspires me like no other and could speak right through my soul.

She decided not to marry until now and to not have a child too as reported on New York Daily News.

I do have my personal take that a union of a man and woman should be sealed by a marriage before anyone could have a child. If I would be the child, most likely like what the children of Brad and Angelina demanded that the couple should have a wedding and confirm a true Mr. & Mrs. I am an old school Catholic.

I know that she’s a very optimistic person and I can’t believe she would think her children would hate her. She’s a great person and I am definitely sure she will find ways to lovingly raise her children. It is her choice and in life we do pick the path that we want, the priority that we set for ourselves so more would benefit for our great existence.

When I first heard this news from the radio, I was thinking that I should write a blog post that would point out how it is going to be a lost that there won’t be a piece of Oprah’s heart in the world when she leaves (considering of course that the child will live longer than his/her mom)… Then I realised that a woman doesn’t really need to bear a child! After all, Oprah has truly mothered children in Africa who then will make wonderful contribution in the world, future women who will bring a different deeper sense of delicate hope that radiates, and it is more than enough not to question if she chose not to have a child.
